I finally figured out why Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is my favorite Mario & Luigi game: nostalgia.
Most people don't like it as much because it doesn't feature any original characters. (Beanish, Hooskis, Shroobs, and new bosses.) But that's exactly why I like it. I can recognize and identify every character in the game without having played it before. (That's not to say I don't like new characters, I'm just glad there's one in the series that features classic Mario characters.)
I have a strange hunch that another Rare rep will join Smash...
So, I had a funny idea for a Waddle Dee reveal trailer that involved the same reveal style for K. Rool and B&K, but then I realized that K. Rool and B&K (And DK and DK, for that matter) were from Rare, and they share a similar reveal.
Then I thought it might be a bit of a waste to only use it twice, so there might be one more...
It's kind of a stretch, and it's not really something I specifically want or expect for the game, but- well, it's just a thought.
In a five-way tie for first:
1: Captain Toad, Bandana Dee, Magolor, King Boo, and Kass.
6: The Miitopia cast.
7: The Brawl Stars.
8: Captain Goomba.
10: Prince Dreambert/Luiginoid tag team.
You'd think Magolor would be my #1, but actually, after Kirby Fighters 2, I don't want him as much as I did before.
